Sony's Stamina power management system and InfoLithium battery give the TRV318 incredible operating time. To keep tabs on battery life, Sony's AccuPower meter displays the number of minutes remaining--right in the viewfinder

Hi8 Format
In a world increasingly dominated by digital, Hi8 offers a refreshingly good format to shoot in.

As long as you just want to document your family's life, and send videos to grandma, you aren't really giving anything up.
